Autoconf caches AC_INIT arguments
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
AC_INIT(m4_esyscmd([scripts/pkginfo.sh package_name]), m4_esyscmd([scripts/pkginfo.sh package_version]), m4_esyscmd([scripts/pkginfo.sh package_bugreport]))Unfortunately, this approach works exactly once since Autoconf 2.69 is caching the computed arguments passed to AC_INIT. Running 'autoconf' or 'autoreconf' again does not result in an updated configure script. Running 'autoconf --force' in the source tree seems to work.
I am trying to get Automake to re-run Autoconf at the right times using the --force option, but thus far I have been foiled. My most recent attempt uses these additions:
configure.ac: # Additional files that 'configure' is dependent onAC_SUBST([CONFIGURE_DEPENDENCIES], ['$(top_srcdir)/ChangeLog $(top_srcdir)/version.sh $(top_srcdir)/scripts/pkginfo.sh'])
Makefile.am: $(top_srcdir)/configure: @MAINTAINER_MODE_TRUE@ $(am__configure_deps) $(am__cd) $(srcdir) && $(AUTOCONF) --forcewhich seems like it should cause autoconf to be re-run with the --force option whenever one of the files listed in CONFIGURE_DEPENDENCIES is updated.
The configure script never gets regenerated. Even if I manually request to build the configure script in the source tree, the configure script does not get regenerated.
The configure script does not get re-generated and re-executed even though 'ChangeLog' has a newer timestamp.
Is there a way to eliminate AC_INIT argument caching when autoconf is re-executed?
Is there a way to assure that configure gets re-generated based on the dependencies listed in CONFIGURE_DEPENDENCIES as documented in the Automake manual section 16 "Rebuilding Makefiles"?
